How to refresh parent page after a pop window is finished loading

I have page1.asp and i would like to auto refresh this page only when a popup window is opened.

Page2.asp is the popup window and when this page is fully opened it redirects to another page "page3.asp" (within the same popup window)

now when page3.asp if finished loading, i would like for it to auto refresh page1.asp whilst maintaining it in the background.

I have tried various java scripts parent refreshs but it doesn't seem to work.

also note that the user may have other windows opens so the correct page must be refresed only.
